I have a clover row counter, one of those red ones that you just have to push down on and what I do is stick the end of it into a jar of playdough (so it's stable) and I hit it with my foot while I'm knitting

Because he thinks feet are disgusting. Even clean feet.

starburst, I love the idea of sticking it in Play-Doh.

Finally - a more practical use for play-doh than sticking to my coffee table, crumbling into my carpet, and finding a way into the soles of my shoes...Thankfully (or sadly, depending on my mood and/or your viewpoint), my children are beyond the play-doh stage! LOL!

But that is a truly brilliant use for the stuff, and I must say, a novel way to count rows. I think my younger cat would knock it over, though, he's a nosey little cuss and believe the entire world is his personal toy box.

its coming.
ive been thinking about this alot.
i never want to put my knitting down to click a thing or make a tick mark. i mentioned this to my friend who has made pedals in the past and has helped me make other knit hacks.
we are in the beginning stages of coming up with something.
when we do i will let you know first thing.

THey have row counters that are stitch markers...
